Survey Association and Charles Taylor Associates join up to provide US offshore wind MWS

In: Windfarms
Charles Taylor Marine Technical Services has entered into a strategic alliance with the Survey Association to develop marine warranty services (MWS) for the North American offshore wind market.

One aim of the new alliance is to enhance risk management during the construction process; this will build on the two companies’ experience of working with marine operations. The alliance will take the role of insurance underwriters’ representatives, ensuring that the projects follow industry best practice and safeguarding against potential risks. The alliance has stated that it will advocate for early involvement, from project inception through to completion – with a stated aim of getting projects delivered on time and in budget.

Offshore  wind energy has been on the Survey Association’s agenda since the 1990s, when it provided MWS for wind farms including Veja Mate in Germany. Charles Taylor Marine Technical Services is a division of Charles Taylor Ltd., which was founded in 1884. It provides surveying and consultancy services to the Maritime industry.

“We’re looking forward to sharing the knowledge we have built over decades working in the European and Japanese offshore wind energy sectors to benefit the developing US market,” said Henrik Uth, CEO of the Survey Association.

Kuhrt Wieneke, President of Charles Taylor Marine Technical Services, remarked: “We are thrilled to partner with the Survey Association on Marine Warranty Services to enhance our clients’ risk management practices and to mitigate risks for their industry leading [construction] projects. Leveraging the experience of the Survey Association with our highly [technical] staff of Master Mariners, Chief Engineers and Naval Architects will provide clear synergies to our clients.”
